Mauro F. Guillén is the Zandman Endowed Professor in International Management at the Wharton School (University of Pennsylvania). The recipient of numerous teaching awards, Professor Guillén is a former Guggenheim and Fulbright Fellow, an elected fellow of the Sociological Research Association, and co-chair of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Emerging Multinationals. He is the author of ten books, including his most recent: 2030: How Today’s Biggest Trends Will Collide and Reshape the Future of Everything.


Professor Mauro Guillén, a professor of international management at the Wharton School, examines recent economic shifts and technological advances in order to predict how the world might look a decade from now. Addressing contemporary crises such as climate change and economic inequality will require “lateral thinking” that approaches a problem from multiple angles and tests numerous solutions.  Agricultural advances might curtail hunger in Africa, where a rising middle class will impact worldwide consumer trends. He also examines how cryptocurrencies might sabotage the banking industry, predicts an uptick in wealth for Asian countries, and offers a carefully reasoned discussion of both the positive and negative potential repercussions of increased automation. A sharp, well-informed analysis of present-day trends and future outcomes provides valuable insights to investors, business owners, and policy makers, and almost everyone else!

Thought Provoking

Great ideas in here. Being from South Africa, I did not realize that by 2030 we would not even measure on the tables for a population above 60 years. This would mean we will have a very young population and with the right opportunities be able to make a great contribution on the economic scale for our future.
